John Antwi returns to Egypt

Egyptian giants Al Ahly have completed the signing of Ghanaian forward John Antwi for $1m from Saudi Arabian club Al Shabab, can exclusively reveal.

The 22-year-old returns to Egypt just under five-months of leaving to join Al Shabab  from Ismaily in a sale reportedly worth $2.2m.

Antwi however failed to live up to his big-name billing since joining the Saudi Arabian club having arrived as two-time top scorer of the Egyptian League.

The former Eleven Wise striker scored just four goals in his half season with Al Shabab.

He was thus considered surplus to requirement at the club leading to his move to Al Ahly with Shabab making a loss of $1.2m.

Antwi becomes the second Ghanaian player to leave Al Shabab following the contract termination of defender Awal Mohammed.
